      It is no wonder that modern presidents sometimes feel that, rather than being Evolution of the modern presidency book head of it, the entire organization is out to get them. Rockefeller came to the vice presidency eager to assist the President, and the formulation of domestic policy was a major area of interest to him. They distrusted executive authority because their experience with colonial governors had taught them that executive power was inimical to liberty, because they felt betrayed by the actions of George IIIthe king of Great Britain and Ireland, and because they considered a strong executive incompatible with the republicanism embraced in the Declaration of Independence From all this I concluded that the selection of a vice presidential nominee, the first and most important decision a presidential nominee faces, should be examined in terms of the qualifications of the presidential nominee himself.

The president has the power to make treaties with foreign governments, though the Senate must approve such treaties by a two-thirds majority. Basically Greve is saying all government entities agencies are power hungry and that Americans should stick to the US Constitution that set up safeguards against the despotism that agencies will ultimately strive for if left to their own whims, instead of acting in the best interest of the country. It has been shown that the power of the executive began to be shaped from the very beginning of the presidency, as it continues to be shaped now.
